That is SO last week

Last week, a television reporter filed a lawsuit against her former employer alleging that she was discriminated against because she is white.  The reporter was terminated following a post on her employer’s Facebook post that included her reactions to a mass shooting at a backyard barbeque in Pennsylvania.  Many critics called the reporter’s post racist.  The reporter’s lawsuit argues that her comments were judged differently, and more harshly, than comparable conduct of an African American employee.  Her suit also pointed out that African Americans have made statements similar to hers without negative reaction.
